Info : Madulkelle Tea and Eco Lodge
Stay in charming tented accommodation in the breath-taking surroundings of the Knuckles Mountains at Madulkelle Tea and Eco Lodge. Guests can get back to nature and away from the hustle and bustle of the city, with a stay at one of these tranquil tented lodges. This peaceful, and surprisingly elegant, accommodation offers a truly unique way of experiencing the nature and beauty on offer here.
Whilst being made of top quality canvas, these tents are far from your usual camping experience! Each ‘lodge’ is home to a comfortable double-bed, en suite bathroom, and dark wooden furniture, opening out at one end onto an outside terrace with panoramic views over the surrounding tea plantations and country side. With dark wooden floors, light bright colours, and plenty of space these rooms remain elegant and comfortable, topped off with magnificent views.
Madulkelle has a main building where guests may enjoy the delicious food in the Grand Dining Room, play billiards in the Lounge Bar, or relax in the Library. Decorated in traditional English furnishings, this building has a homely and friendly ambiance, and the open log fire is a centrepiece during the cooler evenings.
The Lodge has its own infinity swimming pool, looking out over the neighbouring traditional Sri Lankan village and tea plantation, offering a great place to relax and take in the scenery. Massages are available both in-tent or outside under the shade of a tree, of for the more adventurous guests hiking, wildlife trips and adventure sports are also offered.
Just thirty kilometres from the culture capital of Kandy, it is in a great location to explore the northern hill country.
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.
Experience Travel were excellent from the start in advising us on a tour that would suit us based on their detailed local knowledge. This meant we stayed in interesting places sometimes off the beaten track but always to a high standard.
